ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

Hey

No pressure, no expectations, just... ... fun! If we share a mutual attraction and enjoy each other’s company then everything else will naturally fall into place.

I’m a Computer Graphics artist working within the video game industry and a freelance illustrator. Although I work within the game industry, I wouldn't consider myself a hardcore gamer. I’ve been doing the professional art thing since ‘95. Not exactly back in the Pong days… but close. I feel fortunate (and worked very hard) to do what I do for a living... and I love it! My day at the studio essentially feels like an extension of a personal passionate hobby. I'm an artist but that certainly doesn’t mean that I wear a beret with a huge plume stuck in it. I don’t sit at Starbucks talking about new trendy sushi flavored martinis. I am rough yet refined… kind of an artist with a fishing rod in my back pocket… a geek with grit.

I had the privilege of serving 3 years in the US Army, Field Artillery (Desert Storm). After my service I graduated The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. My art career took me from PA, to Big D, Austin TX, Seattle WA, back to Big D.

My 21 yr. old twins are grown. My son is in the AirForce and my daughter is doing her thing in Pittsburgh. My career field doesn’t offer much in the way of the female species. Soooo joining Match seems like an exciting option to meet a special, cool, fun woman. A woman to introduce my hobbies and interests to, for her to share hers with me, and both of us to adventure, explore, and create our own new experiences together.

A woman with a playful nature about her is VERY attractive to me. Bleeding Black and Gold, given I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, is a huge plus but certainly not required.

People that take forever at an ATM or checkout (really… you’re paying with a check?!?!), don’t use their turn signals, smack their lips when they eat (ewe!), are pretentious, are lazy “victim” types, and are BS’ers really irk me.

Few personal quirks:

I cannot leave the volume on an odd number… even if it sounds just right on 23

I don’t fear much of anything other than a home break -in at night, while I am sleeping. I keep thinking about putting a big gate on my bedroom door…haha.

I loathe heights... when riding a roller coaster I don't like it when people so much as even look at me... if they touch me... oh no

When parking I tend to take whatever spot is available 500 miles from the entrance. I don't care to find or fuss about finding rockstar parking. I'd be more than happy to drop you off out front though.

I must eat eggs for the first meal of the day... even if that happens to be 4 p.m.

All of my clothes hangers are white plastic. Color and style are negotiable

It's a ton of fun for me to hide in whatever nook and cranny of the house when I know you are coming home from where ever... then jumping out to startle you. I know I know... you're like "No... just... ... ... no".

I'm competitive... fun game bets (pool, darts, etc),such as the loser having to order a drink using your best English accent, are... well... fun. If you are "meh" about winning, or life in general, we more than likely are not a match.

Few btw's:

btw... Why do a lot of women do that "fish lips" sort of like "Pouty puckering of the lips" look while striking a pose...? Is that the new cute thing to do or some thing? I mean, the duck face thing is cute and all, but... hmmmm...

btw… What’s with all the photos of women peeking out from behind or actually hung up in a tree? I love nature and all but *shrug*... whatever... I'm up for playing hide and seek if that's your thing!

If you happen to be looking for a guy that takes life serious yet knows how to laugh at it, would like investing time in a guy that is looking for “his girl” not a part-time party buddy, and if you do not mind my telling you how gorgeous you are all day… then well… If my broken ice interests you I’d love to hear about it.
